RIP Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse among Musical Talents Gone Too Soon

I didn’t really listen to her music. Her famous song, “Rehab,” is one of my sister’s favorites. No doubt she was a very talented musician. She had a very distinct vocal tone. She attended The BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology. Think: “Fame.”

I got verklempt learning more about her life. Especially when I read that she was diagnosed bipolar and refused medication. She chose to self-medicate with alcohol and crack cocaine. *sigh* Maybe she felt that her creativity would be affected if she treated her illness. I don’t know. She was obviously a tortured soul with many demons.

Here is a video memorial, featuring her cover of “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?” by The Shirelles. This song really highlights that beautiful, distinct tone. RIP Amy.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
